The quality perceived by end-users is our final judgment parameter: we collaborate with our customers to identify opportunities for continuous improvement on the entire Video Content Supply Chain.
Hyper transcoding technology
HYPER Transcoding Technology is an advanced file-based batch transcoder that allows the creation of ultra-optimized HQ encoding pipelines, and can be used on-prem, in the Cloud or in hybrid mode.
Video filter technology
Improving the relationship between perceived video quality and bitrate is one of the main challenges of live encoders, because unlike offline ones, they must produce compressed frames at fixed and constant rate.
Our solution applies psycho-visual analysis algorithms to a video filter called Video Filter Technology (VFT), obtaining a pre-distortion at the origin, through spatial and temporal analyzes adapted to the content.
Integration with Spectral Edge's Vividteq solution improves perceived quality by deconstructing and reconstructing the video stream to ensure an HDR-like viewing experience with a reduction in bandwidth compared to classic HDR.
Video Analysis Platform
NTT DATA Video Analysis Platform (VAP) is a modular and highly customizable platform designed to improve the video analysis processes of Broadcasters and Media Providers using Artificial Intelligence.
NTT DATA VQoE (Video Quality of Experience) is an end-to-end suite of advanced solutions and services designed to improve the quality of the viewing experience for the end customers, so increasingly loyalty and customer satisfaction and ensuring the content offered by Media companies enjoys their viewers’ fullest attention.
NTT DATA offers an end-to-end OTT/IPTV testing and QA automation service for streaming video operators to ensure they consistently deliver the best experience. Video testing robots can test and monitor any service on any device or network, and so detect errors before services are commercially launched. Our dedicated Video Testing Lab automates testing and QA of video delivery devices, while the NTT DATA FLENS AIOps solution helps efficiently monitor the large amount of test data.
OTT Streaming Observatory
NTT DATA OTT Streaming Observatory is benchmark reporting service to help clients understand how they are performing in the streaming space, considering technical quality KPIs compared against those of key competitors in the market.
D-ZERO Streaming Technology
D-ZERO is a set of technologies that work together to minimize latency in critical TV scenarios, such as live sports events, live streams or dual-screen viewing, where it is important that the second-screen app remains synchronized with the main screen.
By minimizing latency, viewers can watch live events develop almost in real time and so remain more engaged.
